Medicare Rehabilitation Hospital Beds in the Far West

Rehabilitation hospitals are part of the hospital network that serves the needs of over 62 million Americans having Medicare Part A insurance coverage.  Over 6,200 hospitals of all types, with over 927,000 beds in total, participated in the Medicare program as of the calendar year 2020.  Rehabilitation hospitals accounted for approximately 5% of those hospitals and a bit more than 2% of those hospital beds.

In the calendar year 2020, Medicare Part A enrollees in the six-state Far West region were, on a relative basis, underserved by rehabilitation hospitals.  Although home to over 15% of the nation's Part A enrollees, the region was home to just 6.2% of the rehabilitation hospital beds participating in the Medicare program.  Here is a state-level summary look at Medicare rehabilitation hospital beds in the Far West region of the U.S.:
